Our philosophy.

The science behind the solution

As fitness professionals with science-based qualifications and training, we tailor our skills to our clients needs. We use a 3 step program to help our clients to achieve their goals:

Step 1 Intrinsic Biomechanics Assessment: understanding how the body is moving by assessing joint movement, muscles spasms, and tension on the nerves.  

Step 2 Corrective strengthening: strengthening muscles that are weak, which will help over-active muscles not to spasm and keeping your body in its correct alignment.  

Step 3 Optimal performance: getting your body moving towards health and fitness goals.

What is biomechanics?

Biomechanics is the study of the human body, the body’s mechanics, and how it moves in mechanical terms. A bit like a car if there is something wrong with the engine the car won't run smoothly, nor will our body. The science is divided into two areas of study: extrinsic and intrinsic Biomechanics.

Optimal performance is when your body is aligned and balance and you are ready to train. weather its running around playing football with your children, running a marathon, looking to loss weight or just living a healthier life, its your body telling you its ready to get the most out of it.

What is optimal performance?

What is corrective exercise?

Corrective exercise is strengthening the weak muscles in our body. For example a muscle can be over active and strong, which can inhibiting the opposing muscle to work correctly coursing this muscle to become weak. The muscle that is over active is doing more than it was designed to do, which could course over tightens and reoccurring strains. By strengthening the weak muscle we make it stronger, and this will share the load of work the over active muscle was doing, creating a more equal balance through the body.

I started in the health and fitness industry when I was 16 years old, working my way up from the bottom, then becoming a personal trainer. Throughout my years I have gained over 55 qualifications and years of experience working with equipment providers, training providers, professional athletes, people with medical problems, postural correction, weight loss, injury prevention and rehabilitation.

I have managed private and public sector gyms, small and large clubs, dual site health clubs and troubled shooted. I have become a tutor training other trainers and Pilates teachers trainer.

My true passion is training people with medical and postural problems and a focus on injury prevention and rehabilitation. I am driven by wanting to help clients to achieve their goals, and with my experience and knowledge I can support, guide and help my clients. This is why I decided to create The Human Body Project so that I can create a 'whole body' approach to training.​​​
